RedRock - What's The "Roast Beef Don" Everyone Is Talking About?
Good news for all meat lovers - There is a chain restaurant called "RedRock" that serves a mountain of roast beef on a rice bowl. As the "roast beef don" both look and taste amazing, it has been very famous and popular in Tokyo and other cities. You should definitely try it!
RedRock is a restaurant specializing American beef menu. The very first store opend in Kobe, Hyogo Prefecture. There are 10 locations in Japan, including Tokyo and Kyoto, and some stores often have a waiting line.
This store is known as the "generator" for the roast beef bowl boom in Japan. One bowl is only ¥880, and the large is ¥1,150. Red Rock is known for serving towering roast beef bowls at a cheap, reasonable price!
Their signature menu is "roast beef don" (regular; 815 yen / large; 1065 yen). This is what everyone is coming for. The beef is tender and juicy so you can easily finish these many slices. It is topped with an egg yolk, brown sweet and savory sauce, and the white sauce that is actually made from yogurt! All items are balanced perfectly and it tastes just incredible. You can't see it, but there is rice hidden in the roast beef.
Look at this mountain of roast beef. It's like a heaven, is't it?
Once you start eating, you won't be able to stop.
It is not as famous as the roast beef don, but their "steak don" (regular; 880 yen / large; 1158 yen) is also amazing. It has a big amount of beef steak that is nicely cooked and seasoned with the homemade sauce.
They have a nice selection of drinks, including beers, wines, whiskies, and cocktails.
Which store to go?
There are some locations in Tokyo, but I recommend you to go the Harajuku location because it is usually less crowded. Located on the basement of a building near Harajuku, Meiji-jingu-mae, or Omotesando station, so easy to access too. As there are many famous shopping and sightseeing spots around, you can eat before or after enjoying these sites.
It's time to visit!
